    Breakfast was expensive.

    I was in what I assume is the unrenovated part of the hotel so got a very good price for a 3 star hotel in an excellent location. The room had everything I needed and was spotlessly clean. The shower had quite a narrow entrance but that's the only complaint. Wish I had arrived earlier to take advantage of the pool. I found the staff very polite and kind, and helpful. While the breakfast is expensive, it did offer quite a lot, and given the low price I paid for the room, it wasn't such a big deal for me but others might be put off and wander down the street to the popular boulangerie and nearby bar. Bourbon l'Archambault is a nice little town a little off the tourist trail with an impressive fortress/castle and lake.

    The extractor fan in the bathroom was very hot on a very hot day and night. We had two rooms, the second was airless and stifling and could have benefitted from a cooling fan in the room as it only had one tiny window.

    The location in the town. The swimming pool and terrace.

    We were in a room facing the sun with shutters that didn't close properly. We were out for the evening and when we got back the temperature in the room was over 40 degrees. Sleep was impossible. We mentioned at the desk when departing that a fan would have resolved the problem. The manager did not care a jot.

    Nicw old fashioned room. A good swimming pool pool.

    The staff was not friendly at checkout and were rolling eye when we spoke English and not French. We just wanted her to take out 6 times breakfast out from our bill - breakfast we didn’t have. It was a big problem for her and she was so unfriendly to us.

    Our room could use a refurbishment, it had a bathroom from multiple decennia old. The mattress of our bed was not comfy. Our room had carpet, which I don't like.

    We were given a larger studio as we were traveling with a small baby, this was very welcoming as it takes te stress out of staying with a child in small room. Now we had the luxury of multiple rooms, thus more space! The hotel has a nice swimming pool which was welcoming during the heat wave of summer 2018.

    Nothing.

    The gentleman at reception was delightful and gave us a warm welcome. The two staff members in the restaurant were attentive and bewilderingly efficient (in a nice way) given the amount of work they had to deal with. We were charmed by the hotel and the town, on our last visit 14 years ago and were even more pleased to have a second stay. Ask for room 12.

    Traditional, calm French hotel. Perhaps the decor is a little tired, but we enjoyed our stay. We were there three days and booking.com did not seem to offer a Demi pension option. The restaurant was good but with limited choices which were the same each day. It seemed that other guests who were on a Demi pension basis Bad more choice (at a cheaper price). The breakfast was euro 13 so we opted to have a coffee in town instead. It would be a good idea to offer all guests Demi pension when they arrive

    The room was very disappointing and looked nothing like the pictures that were shown on Booking. The restaurant looked very nice but our family was seated way back in front of the men's bathroom. Staff did not want to accomodate us moving to any of the many (!) other empty tables. So we left and had dinner at Hotel Les Thermes where the hostess was very warm and welcoming

    Dinner in crowded restaurant with full 28 euro menu or expensive a la carte. No wine by the carafe. Room on corner very hot with not even a fan provided. Luckily we had our own. Noisy traffic on main road right beside hotel.

    Spacious rooms in very old and elegant mansion. Fine view from swimming pool at second-floor level, but pool itself rather small and shallow.

    The village is small and quaint.
    • Leisure trip

    There is an old part to the hotel and a much newer section. We we allocated two rooms in the newer section and though the rooms are okay, they lack the character of the older part and that shown in any brochure for the hotel, or their website. The much bigger problem is the lack of sound insulation between these new rooms. You can here absolutely everything going on around you and above. I don't know whether we were unlucky with who was above us, but the noise that came from the room was horrendous and kept us up for ages, and away again first thing in the morning. My advice, specify a room in the older part of the building, you'll enjoy the experience better.

    The village is small and quaint. Though we didn't use it, there is a nice patio area and small swimming pool (not heated). The gardens and internal courtyard are lovely too. The food was very nice in the restaurant along with the service, but top end for what we received.

    Very warm welcome from the hotel owner and the food in the restaurant was superb. Infact one of the best steaks I have ever had! Our Room was out through the back of the hotel overlooking the garden. It was very spacious with a very comfortable large bed and extremely peaceful. The hotel is situated in a very interesting small town and we hope to return one day to have another look round.
